In our house we have many clocks:
There are two in the kitchen - one on the microwave oven and one on the stove.
In the living room there is only one on the aerial box under the television
In my bedroom I have a radio alarm clock
I have a clock in the bathroom and
another one in the shower room.
In addition to these, there is of course a clock on each of the computers and also on all our mobile phones.
Most of them are under 'my control' - meaning that I set them (except for the computers and the mobile phones).
To my amusement and amazement I have discovered that I have adopted my mother's attitude to time and clocks:
When I grew up there were a lot of clocks around the house.
And just like my clocks now - not one of them showed the same time
NOR the correct time!
This is making The Professor slightly frustrated...
He doesn't understand that I KNOW how much each and every one of them is ahead of REAL time.
My mother did the same.
All the clocks in the house were set forward with varied minutes of inaccuracy.
It used to drive me mad.
Now I do the same.
Figure that one out!
